Please note, this OEL/ADE monograph also applies to hydroxychloroquine sulfate (CAS RN 747-36-4) and hydroxychloroquine diphosphate (CAS RN 6168-85-0). Hydroxychloroquine is a chemotherapeutic agent indicated for treatment of malarial infection, rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Hydroxychloroquine is a racemic mixture. Hydroxychloroquine may act by concentrating in the malarial parasite and inhibiting heme polymerase thereby inhibiting the formation of heme. Hydroxychloroquine, like chloroquine, is a weak base and may exert an effect by concentrating in the lysosomes of the malaria parasite. This interferes with the ability of the parasite to lyse hemoglobin, preventing the normal growth and replication of the parasite.
